So, you’re new to the forum…

When posting a question for general consumption in a group, and this goes for ANY group, please keep these points in mind:

1. DEFINE THE QUESTION. Please figure out, as closely as possible, what you are looking for. Instead of asking “how do you shield?” try “I already know how to shield, what techniques do you use that may help others with this technique?” In the second case, you will get a much more specific answer to this question. The first is very general, and many who could be answering your request may think “this has been asked and answered so many times, search in the group” and skip the question.

2. RESEARCH. Google Works. The search bar in the group works. Facebook’s search works. Ninety-nine percent of the time, the question you are asking has been asked and answered by others in the group, and there are definitely articles about this topic on the Internet. Take your defined question and pull a few keywords and stick them in the search bar, you will get more than a metric ton of returns with the information you want. You’ll have a lot more satisfaction as you found the answer, instead of it being given to you.
